    According to gameday, Bautista was around the plate with every pitch, which is encouraging. I initially thought it was a faux-injury because of his wildness. But perhaps not.

    Fossum should be the Tigers’ mop up man.

    Perhaps Fossum should spot start for Rogers. I think the Gambler is due for a tired arm DL break.
